About.....Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), which was originally gained by isolation from fruits and plants, is produced today by an industrial process. The basis for the industrial Ascorbic Acid synthesis is D-Glucose (grape sugar), one of the most common organic compounds in nature.
The specific field of application in medicine for this vitamin was originally the treatment of the deficiency-disease scurvy. Furthermore, the administration of Ascorbic Acid produces a mobilization for the body's self-defense system, thus facilitating the immune system to overcome pathological situations.
In the food industry, Ascorbic Acid is mainly used as a preservative (for example, in fruit juices and meat products).
High dietary Ascorbic Acid intake appears to protect against gastric cancer. This may be due to its action as a scavenger of reactive radical species formed in the gastric mucosa, resulting in a reduced level of radical-mediated DNA damage.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant vitamin essential to the body's health and is especially important for maintaining healthy skin. Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin.
Unlike most other animals, humans cannot make their own vitamin C. With vitamin C being part of more than 300 bodily functions, life itself depends on daily replenishment. Its primary function is to maintain collagen, a protein necessary for the formation of skin, ligaments, bones and teeth, and for the strength of blood vessel walls. In addition, vitamin C plays an important part in the absorption of iron, which is necessary for the formation of red blood cells. It also plays a role in the utilization of folic acid, one of the B-complex vitamins.
It is well noted that vitamin C is destroyed by food preparation more than any other nutrient. It is also well known that the body does not store vitamin C, but tends to excrete excess amounts.
Bioflavonoids are a companion to vitamin C. Two of the most active forms are hesperidin and rutin. Calcium ascorbate is a buffered (less acidic) form of vitamin C.
Ester-C? ascorbate is a revolutionary form of vitamin C. Metabolites in Ester-C? ascorbate help the vitamin get into the bloodstream faster and in larger amounts with less waste. In addition, these Ester-C? metabolites help the vitamin penetrate white blood cells more efficiently. White blood cells are known to have very high levels of vitamin C which they require for their metabolism. This, in turn, influences the white blood cells' ability to perform their important role as a critical component of the immune system.
Ester-C? vitamin C, with a neutral pH, is naturally processed in purified water, not solvents, and is proven to be better absorbed by the cells for maximum protection of the immune system.
